Teen Wolf on TV

09.01.2009

     Now THAT'S a good use for fangs!

In this week's edition of "Let's F*ck-Up the 80s Every Possible Way". that really fun Michael J. Fox B-classic Teen Wolf, and it won't even be a half-decent motion picture remake but a TV show. On MTV above all. Rock on, kids.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the music network (do they still play music?) has ordered a pilot from a script commissioned back in January, to cash in on the tween horro-mantic genre that TWILIGHT so graciously made hugely popular. "Criminal Minds" creator Jeff Davis wrote the pilot script with a high school setting and obligatory romantic plot line.

"It has a fresh take and is very different from the original," said MTV exec Liz Gateley, in a statement that in no way feels reassuring. "It has more of an 'American Werewolf in Paris' feel to it. It's a dramatic thriller with two best friends in the center who provide a great comedy element." Sounds a little like "Reaper"; maybe they should pick THAT up instead. Besides, if it's SO different, why call it Teen wolf??? How 'bout X-TREME PUBERTY? Any other suggestions?

Extra Tidbit: Anybody else loved that Saturday-morning cartoon based on the film? What can I say, I'm a child of the 80s.

MTV SUCKS

Stick to music videos MTV!! What I find funny is that they still have MTV music awards when they don't even play videos any more. How ironic is that? Are they going to make Teenwolf a reality show? Bad idea....

Yes and the main character's name will be Harry Palms.

So we have the romantic vampire teen angst movie (and CW TV show coming). With the sequel to that movie (sorry refuse to say it) we get the romatic werewolf/vampire triangle.

So who's working on the Mummy teen romatic angst movie? We can call it "Wrapped up in you"

sad

a single tear has slid down my face as a small part of my soul died. I remember when I heard that they were making a film and I thought, "Wow, what a bad idea." I never thought it could get any worse...until now. DAMN YOU MTV, DAMN YOU!!!!

So it's totally original... like American Werewolf in Paris. They might as well admitted it's going to be a piece of shit.

Make it a buffy spin-off for Oz

I have only seen the first two season of Buffy, but Willows first BF on the series, Oz, was a werewolf. If the "buffy" the show it might work.

Knob out

I wonder if they will pay homage to the guy with his knob out at the end? The whole idea sounds a bit like that to be honest.
